A postcard from Hel !

“ Don't be fooled by the name of the city. Nothing could be farther removed from Hell than Hel itself. The Hel Peninsula, a narrow strip of land in northern Poland, is just 34 kilometers long, and at some points less than 200 meters wide. It can trace its origins back to the 12th century when it was the center of the herring trade. Hel city is situated at the very he tip of the Hel Peninsula, which has the Pucka Bay on one side and the Baltic Sea on the other.”
